Shop Steward Training

The backbone of the union

The Steward is the visible presence of the union in the workplace as the union officer who works with and interacts with the members at the workplace and represents them in a specific work area.

The Steward enforces the collective agreement and protects the rights members have acquired through negotiations and other union actions. Stewards are elected or appointed within the Local. Shop stewards are members’ first line of defense, responsible for enforcing the contract and handling grievances, and for proactively ensuring worksite safety, mobilizing members for the union’s political campaigns, orienting new members to the worksite and the union, and more.

The Steward acts as the liaison between the Local Executive and the membership. It is their job to make sure the members they represent at the worksite know what the union and Local are doing.

The Steward is a key person in the union and it is within their power to ensure their Local is strong, representative and successful in protecting membership rights.

If you are interested in becoming a Steward, contact your Local Executive or email kdunne@nape.nf.ca.

NAPE is continuing to offer the newly revised two-day Shop Steward training seminars. This seminar is meant for all Shop Stewards (previously trained, untrained or seasoned Stewards). All those who have not already attended this updated seminar are encouraged to attend.

Seminars will be scheduled for each region and Shop Stewards will be notified once dates are set. NAPE’s goal is to provide this training to all of our Shop Stewards across the province.

 

THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO SEMINARS SCHEDULED AT THIS TIME. PLEASE CHECK BACK SOON FOR UPDATES
